“ombiance, superb! food and service was very good.”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

Dined with a group of 8 freinds in the small set aside table for 8, exceptional for private party without being part of the full ombiance of the restuant. Will be returning, next time for deserts, went to symphany following and did not want to be too full. We had a table for 8 and the service was impecible, no problems with the service nor bill, well trained staff, even the management approched and graciously greeted us. Selectoins of food were truely Italian. Compliments on the house wine,

“Probably best Italian restaurant in Louisiana”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

Ok, first the confession that we love Marcello's Liquor Store and second the confession that we love Italy and things Italian. Still, having said that, we were uncertain whether this restaurant would deliver or not. It did and then some. We did have to wait "4 doors down" at their new Elephant Room for nearly an hour for a table, but we had good drinks in a very posh atmosphere there. Once seated we selected a bottle of reasonably priced red, still very reasonable with the corkage fee, enjoyed wonderfully lightly fried calamari, exceptional green salads with olive salad and most original fried eggplant croutons, then 3 delicious entrees: veal marsala, shrimp pepito, and penne with Italian sausage and roasted peppers. The space itself is very comfortable and appealing and the food is unquestionably the best Italian food we have had in Louisiana.

“Cant deal with all the fat and grease in the pasta”
Reviewed November 27, 2010

I wish the fettuchine wasnt so fattening, it literally makes me sick to my stomach. I have had it 3 times, thinking it was a fluke but I always am sick after. The prices are VERY high as well.
